My name is Ray Jacoby. Along with Judy Guarino, we have adopted several dogs from A.R.P. and Elizabeth.
Never have there been any negative aspects or problems with her dogs. One adoption, which started out as a "foster" situation involving a 2 year old mistreated and abandoned pregnant siberian husky. Three days after we got "Lola", we had to rush her to the vet for an emergency C- section. Elizabeth and A.R.P. handled the entire process with aplomb and professionalism. A.R.P. and Elizabeth should be commended for the difficult service they perform.
Review from Guidestar
Adopt A Rescue Pet was wonderful to work with. They set us up with a wonderful start to adding Tuffy to our family. Cindy and Elizabeth have hearts of gold. This is a wonderful and professional organization that is looking to make the world so much better, one paw at a time.
I adopted an older, "senior" dog from them in November 2015. Wonderful rescue organization with very kind, helpful volunteers.
I adopted my dog from ARP. Everyone was really great. I had communicated to ARP that I would be coming to look at a specific dog. When I arrived, everyone was great, and got the dog I was interested in so we could do a "meet and great" with my other dog. We ended up adopting her, and I love her to pieces. Because of how great this rescue is, I now volunteer with them whenever I can. Thanks ARP!
I adopted millie aka girlfriend about 6 months ago. she had been with adopt a rescue pet a long time. it is so difficult to adopt an older dog she is 10 years old. she is a bull terrier like the dog in the target ad. she is so sweet and funny. she can not hear or see very well but she stays very close to me at all times. like so many of these dogs their lives have not been very good but with adopt a rescue pet they have a new lease on life.
We adopted a puppy through ARP two weeks ago. The adoption fee included up-to-date shots, neuter, a bag of dog food, some puppy toys, and discounts on a TON of stuff at PetSmart. Our new puppy, Whiskey, is adorable! He arrived healthy, clean, and full of energy! Adopt-a-Rescue Pet has an in-depth application process, asked a lot of questions about our lifestyle and home, and worked to make sure Whiskey would be a good fit for our family. We weren't able to take Whiskey home right away (we picked him up from the vet 3 days later after he was neutered). As you can imagine, there were tons of admirers on 'adoption day' at PetSmart but once we claimed him, ARP didn't allow anyone else to play with the puppies or get near the cage. I appreciated this more than anything; they protected our puppy and helped ensure his health and safety. I'm very impressed with this organization and will recommend ARP to others!
The head of this rescue and most of the people involved who foster pets are beyond committed to saving the lives of precious dogs that deserve the love and security of good homes. I've adopted 2 dogs from them in the last 8 years and am indescribably grateful for both blessings.
4th best day of our lives was the day I dropped off some blankets and left with a little Gracie. (Getting married, adopting Trapper and Roscoe were the first three best days) Las Vegas chapter is awesome!!!
In 2005 I realized that my American Eskimo son (the great, late Handsome Bear Kelly) needed a sibling. I went online and found Adopt A Rescue Pet and made contact. I set up an appt to go see the Eskie dogs for adoption. One of them was an 8-10 yr old female with vision challenges named Gypsy. I knew instantly that she was his new sister! I was so impressed with Heidi Pieper and the love she gave to these dogs blessed enough to be fostered by her and her husband Jay! I also met ARP's founder Elizabeth Davis and helped to raise money for them because I know that this organization is run well. Often times, we donate to a charity never really knowing if the monies are being used properly. I proudly attest to knowing that ARP is a model charity for helping abused and abandonded dogs. If you only have $1 to give, please give it to ARP!
